GIA’s Global Leadership Program at Harvard Business School (HBS), held June 24 to 27, brought together senior gem and jewelry executives for a custom four-day curriculum led by world class professors and based on the renowned HBS case study method. This year’s class, the largest in the six-year history of the program, explored exciting case studies focused on innovation and discussed how to apply the lessons from those cases to the challenges facing the global gem and jewelry industry. The exceptional group of leaders represented the broad scope and diversity of the industry.

 “This unique program creates an opportunity for thought-leaders to candidly discuss new ideas and approaches to their day-to-day work and long-term goals,” said Susan Jacques, GIA president and CEO. “This program, now in its sixth year, is a direct extension of our renowned education heritage.”
The GIA Global Leadership Program focuses on new research and best practices to deliver actionable insights. Upon successful completion of the program, participants were awarded a certificate from the Harvard Business School.

 GIA, in conjunction with HBS, initiated the program in 2014. The goal of the four-day residential program is to bring together global leaders from different sectors of the gem and jewelry industry to examine issues faced by international businesses, and apply the lessons learned in other industries to their own businesses. The program also provides an unparalleled networking opportunity for senior executives, building bridges between different sectors of the global gem and jewelry supply chain.

 GIA will hold its next Global Leadership Program at Harvard from June 22-25, 2020. Participation is limited and by invitation only.
